Oliver Tree premieres new, Travis Barker-produced single, “Placeholder

Atlantic Records

Oliver Tree has premiered a new single called “Placeholder,” co-produced by Blink-182‘s Travis Barker.

“This song is about a placeholder at a dinner I went to a few months back,” the “Life Goes On” artist explains. “The person who was supposed to be sitting next to me didn’t show up and it was the most beautiful, elegant plate and utensils set up that went completely unused. Afterwards I drove directly to the studio and wrote a song about it.”

You can listen to “Placeholder” now via digital outlets. It’s also set to appear on a deluxe edition of Tree’s new album Cowboy Tears, due out later this summer. The original record, which features the single “Cowboys Don’t Cry,” dropped in February.

Tree is launching a U.S. tour in support of Cowboy Tears in August. The outing kicks off with Tree’s Fire Festival — a play on the infamous Fyre Festival — which takes place August 4 in San Diego with a lineup featuring Smash Mouth, Huddy and Sueco among others.
